West Indies collapsed in the evening session to 264-9 at stumps on day four of the second Test against Pakistan.

Setting up what should be a nail-biting final day at the Kennington Oval, the hosts accumulated only an 183-run lead, giving the tourists a glimpse of a maiden Caribbean-series triumph.

Pakistan, who lead the three-match Test series 1-0, have leg-spinner Yasir Shah to thank after he took his 10th Test-match five-for.

He finished with six wickets for 90 runs, including key batsmen Shai Hope (90) and Kraigg Brathwaite (43).

Hope was caught high at cover by Azhar Ali as the hosts crumbled from a steady 235-4 to a dreadful-looking 236-7 after tea.

Devendra Bishoo (16) and Shannon Gabriel (0) are the last men at the crease and will resume on day five hoping to play out for a draw after Pakistan scored 393 in reply to the hosts' first-innings of 312.
